From my understanding, you cant change where you are from, so it is a fixed placement. I will always be from (born and/or raised) in Canada and that will never change so 'es' is appropriate.

why not "Mi madre es de ahi"

It is understandable using "ahí" instead "allí". But there is a little difference, even we (spanish native speakers) ignore it.

  • When you say "ahí" you mean a place which is nearer than when you say "allí"

But besides that, you answer is correct.

Greetings.

Isn't it kind of confusing? I think it is the perfect level for me.
